The Monmouth County, NJ attorneys at Byrnes O’Hern & Heugle work with business clients to develop and cultivate strategies that make commercial litigation the strategy of last resort. Lawsuits are expensive, time-consuming and stressful. But sometimes they are unavoidable. When a dispute is inevitable, business owners need an attorney who can provide reliable advice and who has earned their trust. Despite the high transactional costs associated with litigation, lawsuits happen and business owners need to be able to negotiate claims confidently knowing that their legal counsel will aggressively pursue a case when litigation is inevitable. Good outcomes are often the product of a demonstrated willingness and ability to litigate.
Why Should Commercial Litigation Be a Last Resort?
Companies dealing with litigation hardly ever see the inside of a courtroom, and it’s becoming even more uncommon for cases to go to trial. There are plenty of reasons why companies do whatever they can to avoid taking a dispute into a courtroom. One primary reason is the expense of taking a case to trial. Businesses value money, time and predictability. Taking a case to trial gives control of the outcome to a judge or jury. Trials are also time-consuming for everyone involved, and litigated cases can languish in the court system for years. COVID 19 has slowed the process even further.
In the rare case when a commercial dispute does go to trial, it usually means the parties could not resolve their differences and walking away was not an option. In these cases, having an experienced commercial litigation firm on your side is essential to reaching a positive outcome. The attorneys at Byrnes O’Hern & Heugle work hard to avoid litigation for our clients, but are fully prepared to try cases to completion in court if a consensual resolution cannot be obtained.
